When it comes to deodorants, are you trying to go a more natural approach?
I recommend you create your own easy to make deodorant, with essential oils. I found this recipe long ago, and decided to make it after my Eco Tan Deodorant ran out!
This is a really easy and cheap home remedy, and unlike baking soda, this deodorant spray won’t cause you to chaff.
This is a non-toxic spray that can be used on your underarms, on your feet and even in your shoes.
You can also use this spray as a nifty air deodorizer to make your room smell fresh.
✨4 oz. Spray Bottle
✨1/2 cup Witch Hazel
✨1/4 tsp. Aloe Vera Gel
✨5 drops of doTerra Frankincense Essential Oil - Order HERE
✨5 drops Tea Tree Oil
✨5 drops of doTerra Citrus or Lavender Essential Oils - Order HERE
☝🏼️What to do:
Fill the spray bottle with witch hazel, but do not fill all the way. Add your essential oils and place on the cap. Shake the bottle a bit to mix all the items together.
Spray onto clean armpits, on your feet or in your shoes to eliminate odors.
Keep stored in a cool, dry place and shake before using. Keep for up to a month before making a new batch.
Here is a cool article published on the effect of Lavender essential oil on hair growth.
"Hair care: Lavender essential oil is useful for hair care because it has been shown to be very effective on lice, lice eggs, and nits. Furthermore, lavender essential oil has also been shown to be very helpful in the treatment of hair loss, particularly for patients who suffer from alopecia, an autoimmune disease where the body rejects its own hair follicles. A Sottish study reported that more than 40% of alopecia patients in the study reported an increase in hair growth when they regularly rubbed lavender essential oil into their scalp. Therefore, lavender oil is sometimes recommended as a preventative measure for male pattern baldness!"

DIY Hair Growth Shampoo
Did you know you can make your own shampoo? Yes! You can also use ingredients that enhance hair growth, such as Lavender essential oils, Aloe Vera, and Coconut Milk.
Discover my own shampoo recipe, that I have recently switched to. Easy, simple, effective and completely safe. Also the beautiful aroma is just a bonus!
Why should you be making your own shampoo and conditioner:
Conventional hair products are too toxic and harm you, your health AND your environment.
Have you looked at what is in the ingredient lists? Most shampoos contain synthetic preservatives like Parebens, and toxic ingredients like SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureate Sulfate) which is an irritant and possibly carcinogenic.
Who should use this shampoo?
I specially recommend this to those with sensitive scalps, or those with eczema (also add tea tree oil), psoriasis and skin issues. I also advocate this to those who want to steer clear off toxic ingredients, and those who would like to learn how to make their own beauty and personal care products.
You will need:
1. 1/4 cup Aloe Vera
2. 1/4 Cup Coconut Milk
3. 20 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
This recipe leads for up to 2 weeks. Doesn't need refrigeration, but you're welcome to put it in the fridge if you like.
I don't use conditioner because I feel like this recipe conditions my hair pretty good.
